The Nest was a very pleasant spot that made the island experience feel authentic. The food was great, the service was quick and the views were beautiful. If you get a chance, take a catamaran ride with Peter! It was such a fun addition to our trip! He was very nice and had answers to all of our questions about... More

We had lunch here, chicken curry was ok, but coconut shrimp was not good. Slow service was frustrating as well. The beach is very nice, but pretty crowded. Umbrella's and chairs are available for rent.

The water color by Valley Church beach is AMAZING! It was nice to be able to walk up, get a cocktail and use the facilities while enjoying the views from this gorgeous location.

Lunch was great and probably one of the best that I felt we've had on the island so far. The portions were good and prices were reasonable. I had the World famous coconut shrimp for $16 (American) that included 4 medium/large size prong shrimp, a very small side salad, and red beans and rice. My wife had the chicken quesadilla... More

Nice beach and even better eating establishment. Very well maintained and our lunch was very good. The only drawback is that the water has a number of shells which was hard on the feet when going in for a swim. But again, good food with nice ambience.

Valley church is a great beach and the cocktails in the Nest are superb. Excellent choice, service unusually speedy for the Caribbean. Food is snacky but fine. The beach is small and can get crowded when cruise ships are in.

We unfortunately went when there were 3 cruise ships in - this is a destination for them. That said, the bar was not run off its feet but the service was shambolic. We went a second time when there were no cruise ships in harbour and the service was worse - including having no water in the loos. The food... More
